The American rockers play in Britain one last time before they disband...

Smashing Pumpkins have announced their last ever UK tour dates, having announced earlier this year are to split once all promotional duties for their current album ‘MACHINA/THE MACHINES OF GOD’ have been completed.

The band will play: Glasgow SECC (October 30) Manchester Apollo (31) Birmingham NEC (November 1) Wembley Arena (3)

Tickets, priced at #20, will go on sale from 9am this Thursday (June 22).

Formed in 1989 in Chicago, the Pumpkins releasesd five albums including this year’s ‘MACHINA/The Machines Of God’, before announcing plans to split.

On announcing the split to Californian radio station KROQ earlier this year, Billy Corgan said: “We felt that before the start of this album that we had sort of come to the end of our road – emotionally, spiritually, musically.”
